Event description
This outdoor and distanced creative movement class is an opportunity for creativity, skill building, and communing with people and nature.

About this Event

This creative movement class will focus on imagination and expressivity. We will play games that gently challenge and build our coordination, strength, and balance. Students will be exposed to movement influenced by hip-hop, ballet, folk, and modern dance. We’ll have lots of fun while being ourselves, appreciating each other, and working together. We will dance like animals, play games, make up stories with fantastical characters, and more.

This is not a drop-off class. An adult guardian is expected to stay with their young dancer to help them participate and follow safety protocol.

This class is a unique opportunity for children to get exercise, bond with their peers, learn skills, and be creative all with incredibly minimal risk of covid-19 transmission. We will be meeting outside as weather allows. If the weather is rainy or otherwise inclement, we will change to meet online (likely Zoom) if necessary. When we are outside, we will follow this protocol:

-We will maintain at least 6 feet distance from each other.

-Everyone will be required to wear a mask.

-If for some reason, a dancer needs to remove their mask (likely to drink water or change masks), then that person will need to distance themselves at least 12 feet away from others.

-If a student or adult care-taker has any covid-19 like symptoms (cough, fever, loss of smell, etc.), they will be asked to stay away from class. If the teacher develops symptoms, the class will be held online.

I will provide some support to the students to understand and maintain this protocol. In this age range, the spatial awareness for appropriate distancing may be challenged, thus each child or pair of children should have and adult with them to assist with distancing and other safety protocol.

This class is geared towards ages 3-5, but Loren can consider older 2-year olds if they have appropriate movement skills and verbal understanding.

The class is capped at 8 student participants.

This 45 minute class happens Mondays 2:00-2:45pm from September 14- October 26, 2020 for this Fall Session running for 6 weeks. There will be no class on Monday, September 28 as it is Yom Kippur. 

This class is open to all gender expressions. There is no set costume or dress code. Students are asked to wear clothes and shoes they are comfortable dancing in outside. Flexible pants that cover knees and shirts that cover shoulders are ideal. Fantastic costuming is permitted as long as it doesn't impede movement or safety. Depending on the weather/temperature, bringing a warmer outer layer could be good. Sneakers with some cushioning and that fasten securely to the foot are ideal. Parents/caretakers are expected to support their children in making good decisions about their clothing and footwear.
